Cannabis Legalization Impasse

Legislation to legalize adult, recreational use of marijuana was moved out of respective committees in late November but has not advanced for final floor votes. There remain at least two significant areas of disagreement between the Murphy Administration and the legislative sponsors and, at this point, it is unclear as to when this impasse will be resolved.   

The League has worked closely with the Urban Mayors Association (NJUMA) and the Conference of Mayors (NJCM) on the issue. While there is no consensus on the legalization issue itself, there is consensus on related issues in the likely event that such legislation eventually passes, including the need to increase the local flexibility in assessing a local option tax and the provisions regarding expungement and restorative justice.

The League’s November 27 letter has additional details as does the PDF of the free webinar offered by the League on November 30.
